So the most solid thing in the film is it scoring. The music is well done. The story frankly meanders. It borrows heavily from creepypasta. Not just slendy... which I thought would be fun. But its really fails to make good on some oh god no moments... that the writers or director for whatever reason... Just decided to let slip by unused. Also they gave the monster an ability... and then had it make use of that ability to an actual effect... once. WIth out spoiling it the finish... the final climax... make even less sense. Its really needed a better director. Or an editor. Its all over the place, in places its too brief in other they spend way too much time on slice of life character bits. Its not terrible but it also really not in any way besides the score great.
This film has to be one of the WORST horror films I have ever seen. The characters are painlessly boring, the script dull and the music... well it made my head hurt. I found myself hoping early on in the movie, that Jay would just die already so I could go clean house or.... pull weeds in the back yard, anything that would be more enjoyable than watching this so called suspense master piece. On the other hand, the actual "plot" could have been something amazing. Shame it was executed so awfully.

I have to admit the soundtrack is tje only thing that saved this movie and added any suspence. Remimded me of the early nightmare on elm street movies. But don't go into this looking for anything remotely good. For some reason this is the movie they chose to throw into the hype machine. Sadly lacking of any real story. This one's all sizzle no steak
